    Best book on Australia's 1991 tour of West Indies?

    The 1990/91 Australian tour of the West Indies will filled with animosity between the two sides as well as some off the field controversies.

    Can anyone recommend me the best book/tour diary on this series?

    Not the Roland Fishman one. That's basically only good as kindling.

    There's one by Mike Coward called 'Caribbean Odyssey' which I have somewhere but don't ever recall reading, so can't help as to whether it's better than Fishman's firelighter

    Does Mike Coward somehow manage to wangle into his book how special it is to play cricket in India? He does in any other conversation or article of his I've ever read.

    If anyone has read Mike Coward's "Caribbean Odyssey", please give a review of this book.

    Does it includes a detail description of the tour including the heated exchanges between the players and other controversies?

    It's very well illustrated, and looks like he's tried to make it a bit of a travel book too - I'll have a better look at the weekend

    The Fishman book might be for you after all. Can't promise it's not partially a product of his imagination though.
